Calculating Bed or Lawn Size:

 

Area Square Feet = Length of Area (x) Width of Area

                                                 Example:  A 5 foot wide bed that's 20 feet long

                                                                                    Length (5') x Width (20') = 100 square feet

 

                                                                 Example: A 100 foot wide lawn that's 50 feet long

                                                                                     Length (100') x Width (50') = 5,000 square feet

Area Cubic Footage = Length of Area (x) Width of Area (x) Height of Area

 

Example: How much soil do I need to raise or elevate a  10' x 10' square foot area by 3"

                      Length (10') x Width (10') x Height (.25') = 25 cubic ft.

                      Answer is just a little under 1 cubic yard of soil which is 27 cubic ft. or

                      25 (1 cubic ft.) bags of bagged topsoil

 

Example: I want to top dress an 20' x 100' area (2,000 square ft.) area with 1" of soil.

                       How much soil do I need?

                       Width (20') x Length (100') x (.083') = 166 cubic ft. of soil

                     * Note - .083' was derived from dividing inches 1" x 12" (1 ft.) = .083'

                        Answer: 166 cubic ft. of soil or (166 cubic ft. 27 cub.ft.) = 6.15 cubic yards soil
